In brief: Grieving
I'm sorry for your loss.
Grief is natural after the death of a loved one, and the time needed is very individual. Sadness, longing, reviewing memories, and pangs of missing him/her can happen. You may not feel like taking on projects for now, and may need quiet time. Confiding in trusted others is helpful, and accepting their support. Be gentle with yourself; let healing evolve.
